Preparing for severe weather

News >>

As we enter summer, a time of more severe weather events, one insurer is prepared to help you deal with weather events like bushfire, flood and cyclone. 

They have prepared a guide to give you insight into 2013’s weather risks – including bushfires, floods and cyclones – and how they will help you if impacted by an event.

This guide is designed to help inform discussions with you to help better understand your risk and ensure you have the right level of insurance to protect your property and assets, should the worst-case scenario occur.

They have also prepared checklists and claims information to help our  customers prepare for bushfires and cyclones and minimise the risk of damage to their property and business.
